When I walked in the place I knew that a new chapter was about to be written. I saddled up to the bar and sad down next to a young vivacious woman was by herself. I said hi and she said hi back.
It had been years since I had ventured into this place. I checked my pocket for quarters and headed to the jukebox and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was still loaded with some of the best records of all time in all genres of music. It was loaded with…Continue
St. Croix… - I can’t remember whether I flew out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale but in 1973 to get to the island of St. Croix from south Florida you flew 1500 miles non stop to San Juan, Puerto Rico. From there it was a short seventy mile hop east to St. Thomas where the plane did not refuel before taking off for an even shorter fifty mile hop south to St. Croix. We deplaned on the tarmac and with my backpack and sleeping bag over my shoulder; I walked into the tiny terminal…Continue

“Sit the fuck down, you insufferably pompous Protestant prude!” erupted JMac. A second later, JMac smashed into the wall of Blake’s homely home, falling in a cascade of glass from broken picture frames and photos taken through Blake’s self invented Gigantic Reverse Microscope, which was a great deal more powerful than the present day Hubble Telescope.
“I, ah, I am sorry, sir…mostly for forgetting your violent temper and extraordinary power,” said JMac, who was struggling to get off…Continue

NEW YORK. On the surface, Amelie Bernard seems content enough as the 68-year old widow sits alone in her Bleecker Street apartment surrounded by memorabilia from her youth. “We were young, we were in love and mad for the world and all its glorious prospects,” she says with a wistful smile. “Then they hung a soft drink’s name on us, and everything somehow or other turned sour.”
Bernard is referring to a several-year period beginning in 1964 when…Continue

I had been homeless almost a year when the women's educational project at Antioch University lei'd us for a party they were having for what I don't remember. This was taken in front of Mary's Place, the old place, the one where I planted myself behind the front counter for the better part of a year.
My husband dropped and broke his cell phone. He went to Verizon to get another one. They convinced him to get a different brand than his old phone. He took it and called me. The thing echoed my voice back at me. And it picked up all the background sounds. He told the salesrep. The salesrep told him that for $35, he could give it back and get the same model as his old one. $35? $35! My husband asked to…Continue
